The Decay of an Angel by A.J. Huffman

The Decay of an Angel 

“She found apples good eating.
Naturally she shared.”
                                    -- Julia Randall

He could see
that innocence would die
by her lips.
Before the offer was made.
But he couldn’t resist.
Couldn’t refuse.
The lush red.
The sensuous slither.
Of a smile
set for damned.
And he didn’t care
that his world was falling
beneath her shadow.
She had already convinced him.
Her paradise
of darkness.
Was best.
